From Tealet

Grower: Naturalitea
Region: Shizuoka, Japan

Bathed in the bright sun of midsummer, this is pure Japanese black tea made from the new leaves that grow in the summer time. We have imported processing machines from the Sri Lanka, the country of black tea, to create our own black tea processing factory, and have spent the last decade creating our own unique processing method. Ayumi Kinezuka returns to Sri Lanka frequently to study techniques and incorporates them, combines them with our knowledge of Japanese Yabukita tea plants to create the the Setoya Momiji. What we are aiming for is a mellow, naturally sweet tea without astringency that tastes amazing without mixing sugar or milk. Setoya is the name given to the area in Fujieda City, Shizuoka Prefecture, where many of our fields are located. Momiji is the name for Japanese maple, a beautiful tree with delicate leaves that turn bright red and orange during the fall.

This tea is so odd. It smells like something my grandma makes at Christmas time. Fudge maybe? The taste is even odder. It taste like English breakfast, but not as bold. Has a honey, yet warm spicy after taste left on the tongue. The lingering mouth feel is like after eating a piece of milk chocolate; the way it coats your mouth. Maybe it is a grassy taste that is associated with Japanese greens, but darker? My mind hurts. I will put up a full review tomorrow on my blog; as this is just he fist steep. My mind still hurts……

Never mind the milk chocolate flavor, it is more of a woody note. So odd.

It is kinda of a mind-F. Its just……. it’s like hojicha, but darker and deep woody flavor with some chocolate flavor. Also you can buy it at Yunomi.us
